The healing power of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV for short) has been known for millennia—dating back to ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. The Roman Army—once the most powerful and formidable conquerors of the known world—used an ACV tonic to stay strong and healthy…
And Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used this amazing elixir as a natural antibiotic and antiseptic to heal patients in 400 B.C.!
- Weight Loss! In a Japanese study participants who drank more ACV than their counterparts during a 12 week period had lower BMI, waist circumference and visceral fat than the control group who drank none!
- According to one study, consuming ACV decreased the risk of esophageal cancer!
- In clinical trials, ACV was shown to slow the growth of cancerous cells within the prostate!
- —a leader in cancer research and treatment—fights cancer with a therapy that alkalizes the body to inhibit the growth of cancer because cancer can’t survive in an alkaline environment. ACV naturally alkalizes your body!
Raw organic apple cider vinegar truly is nature’s perfect miracle food—and should never be confused with regular clear vinegar. Clear vinegar has none of the health properties of ACV and can actually be harmful.
ACV has been used to ease digestion, aid in flu prevention, reduce inflammation, regulate pH balance, ease nausea and heartburn, as a staple in detox regimens, and for a number of skin conditions—including reducing acne and smoothing wrinkles!
But why exactly does ACV contain so many healing properties?
The secret may lie in its alkalizing effect!
Even though ACV is acidic (like a lemon or lime), it creates a perfect alkaline environment in your body that is the exact opposite of what most diseases require to thrive.
And then there’s the incredible concentration of naturally occurring vital nutrients...
- Potassium: essential for normal heart, kidney and other organ and cellular function
- Iron: important for blood health
- Magnesium: vital to heart health
- Enzymes: boost chemical reactions in the body
- Malic acid: protects vinegar from viruses, bacteria and fungus
- Acetic acid: slows the digestion of starch and inhibits bacterial growth
- Calcium: builds strong bones and teeth
- Pectin: helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol
- Ash: maintains a healthy alkaline state in the body
Plus, ACV provides a veritable smorgasbord of vitamins and powerful antioxidants including vitamin A, B6, C, E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, beta-carotene and lycopene!
But there is ONE extra-special ingredient that puts ACV over-the-top in health-promoting potential—and that’s “Mother.”
Also known as Mycoderma aceti, Mother of vinegar is created when acetic acid bacteria and a type of cellulose develop during the fermentation process.
Mother of vinegar is harmless—and the phenomenal health-promoting characteristics it possesses are out of this world! Such as living nutrients and friendly bacteria—the kinds you hear about that are so important for “balanced” health…
A body that’s not properly pH balanced is wide open for disease and sickness because:
#1 Acidity robs minerals from bones, cells, organs and tissue!
#2 Without minerals—vitamin absorption is compromised!
#3 Toxins and pathogens easily build up and the immune system is suppressed!
This is why Hippocrates made ACV his go to treatment of choice to fight infections—and why more and more people are realizing…Natural REALLY IS better!
This wonderful clump of soil we call home is truly a miracle! Everything—I mean everything—we need to thrive and survive is here on God’s green earth… but we haven’t been the best stewards.
In an effort to make more and better food and feed billions of people, something has gone awry. The food we eat is processed or genetically modified—or pumped so full of antibiotics and pesticides—you have to wonder… are we trying to poison ourselves?
There’s something wrong with our way of thinking when something as pure and natural as ACV is considered an “out of the box” remedy—when in fact it’s just a good old simple common-sense way to promote overall health and well-being!
So why do some people find it hard to believe that one simple food can do so much good? Partly because we’re conditioned to believe that natural cures don’t work, and that we have to put our faith in dangerous pharmaceuticals to find relief.
Now if that’s not “out of the box,” I don’t know what is! How often has the next big drug been fast-tracked through the FDA and fed to millions of trusting people expecting to be cured…
Only to discover that the medicine they were taking was making them sicker—even killing them?
But as soon as you understand the “business of medicine” it all becomes crystal clear: Conventional medicine is about treating your symptoms—not preventing illness.
Mother Nature, on the other hand, is all about handing you just what you need to enjoy…Pure and Simple Health
with Apple Cider Vinegar
Using ACV to promote your well-being, stop hair loss, treat a bladder infection, alleviate allergies, reduce varicose veins, lower your blood pressure or soothe a sore throat is so simple—you only have ONE rule to follow…
Dilute, dilute and dilute. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
ACV is highly acidic—so it’s always best to mix it with water. If a particular remedy calls for two teaspoons of ACV to be ingested—stir it into a glass of water—because drinking ACV straight may damage tooth enamel. Or burn going down the hatch.
Drinking diluted ACV tastes just a little sour, but I’ll tell you… it’s much easier to drink to your health than deal with the long list of downright scary side effects you’ll hear on the TV drug commercials—the ones that make you wonder if it’s safer just to stay sick!
But drinking ACV isn’t the only way for you to reap its healing benefits—sometimes just a little dab will do ya…First Aid with ACV
I wasn’t exaggerating when I said I could name 58 health purposes for ACV.
I’ve already mentioned a few—including how ACV has been shown in studies to impact the fight against cancer, support heart health, and prevent many common illnesses.
And there are plenty more ways it can safeguard you against other life-threatening illnesses!
But let’s start here with some simple, basic, every day health issues that I bet you, a family member, a friend or neighbor could definitely put to use today starting with…ACV First Aid: External Itching
There are numerous causes of external itching—dry skin, allergic reaction, an imbalance in the body—you name it! And lotions or creams don’t always soothe. In fact, if you’ve scratched till your skin is raw, lotion can further irritate.
But I can almost guarantee that no matter the cause—a little ACV can tame an itch in no time.APPLICATION:
• 1/4 cup ACV
• 1 cup water
• 1 clean cotton ball
Mix ACV with water
Dab the affected area a couple of times a day
Stop when the itching subsides
No more running to the drugstore to take care of:
- Painful boils!
- Athlete’s foot!
- Jock itch!
- Fungal ear infections!
- Corns, calluses or warts!
- Even swollen, unsightly varicose veins!
Only vary the ratio of ACV to water (you’ll discover how easy it is to do) and you’ll be able to home treat just about any annoying skin condition without costly ointments or prescriptions!
